How to play Texas Hold'em
A Texas Hold'em hand
The dealer will deal each player at the table two cards, then five community cards are revealed. The players bet once based on their hands and then 3 times as the community cards are revealed. The player with the best hand at the end of the round wins the pot.
The goal of Texas Hold’em is to compete against the other players for a pot of money provided by the players themselves.
POKER PRO TIP: Poker gets easier with practice. Don’t get frustrated and try to follow the flow of the game, but be careful with your tells!
Players bet before the deal begins, placing their bets in front of them in the designated betting areas.
Big Blind/Little Blind: A forced bet before the round begins, the big blind is equal to the minimum bet and the little blind is equal to half the big blind. The player to the left of the dealers chip must pay the little blind and the person to their immediate left will pay the big blind. After the cards are dealt the next player to the left of the big blind begins the round.
